    Equivalent of Device Manager in Windows?
    I *think* (and it's been awhile since I've used a Mac) it's Apple menu > About this Mac > then click "More Info..."

    Umm. I am pretty sure that's how you open "System Profiler" which has a hardware section... There is not something identical.

    As far as I know, that's as good as it gets. Like I said, it's not identical to Windows.
    What are you looking to do?

    I just got this mac last night and I want to confirm the hardware specs

    I thought after all these years on a windows I would try something different !

    I don't even know how to get to "apple -"about this mac" as you said earlier

    Thanks for your patients

    Up at the very top of your screen, all the way to the left hand side, there is a little apple icon. Click that, and go down and select "About this Mac"
    This is kind of like right clicking my computer and selecting properties, it gives basic information about the system.
    Then click "More info..." which will open system profiler. On the left hand side, there will be a tree called "Hardware." When expanded, this lists all of the hardware of your computer, in detail, by category. This is as close to device manager as it gets as far as I know.

    Just search for System Profiler using Spotlight. Hold in Cmd and press the spacebar, or click on the blue magnifiying glass on the top right corner of your screen.

    GOT-IT , Thanks! didn't know about the apple icon thing ,

    one more question I got last years model with the clicker bar not like the New ones, and the clicker on the right side does not work it doesn't do what the mouse does on a windows machine, is there a difference in these clickers between a mac machine and a windows machine?

    what I'm saying is the mac has a straight bar but but only does one thing not like a windows machine where you have 2 clickers and does 2 different things ?

    Thanks!
